A longitudinal drive shaft delivers power from the engine/transmission to the front or back of the vehicle (depending on whether its front-wheel drive or rear wheel drive, or in some cases, four-wheel drive) before going
to the wheels. This central differential then transmits the power to the wheels via a much shorter drive shaft.
To The reason why a vehicle has a gearbox transmission is because of the fact that while the engine typically operates between 600 to about 7000 rpm (revolutions per minute); the wheels only rotate between 0 to 1800 rpm.
Also, the engine provides its maximum torque output in the middle of its range (more or less) while the highest amount of torque is often required for pull away. Therefore, some kind of transformation needs to take
place in order for engine power to be transmitted to the wheels. The gearbox transmission is responsible for this.
The most common problem that occurs with the clutch is that the friction material on the clutch plate wears out and thus causes the clutch to start slipping. This wearing only occurs when the clutch plate and flywheel are
spinning at different speeds. Once they are locked together and spinning at the same speed, no wear occurs. In the most extreme case, the clutch will cease to draw any power from the engine to the wheels
and will need to be replaced.
